I Just Want to Pee Alone

Peeing alone? What's that mean? As a mom of 3 boys (ages 2.5, 5 and 6.5 for those of you whom are new stopping by my blog), I am not sure what going to the bathroom alone means. I never get to go to the bathroom alone these days, unless I am actually home alone. There is usually a kid or two in the bathroom with me, because they cannot fathom the idea allowing their mother to actually go to the bathroom in peace. I don't understand why fixing their toy with dead batteries or showing me a level they passed in a game on their iPod can't wait two minutes. It's apparently the end of the world if I don't see it or do it now.

I received a copy of I Just Want to Pee Alone courtesy of Jen of People I Want To Punch in the Throat to read & review.

This hysterical compilation of mom blogger stories was great. I laughed my way through almost every one! A few of the stories I was able to relate to, being a mother of 3 myself. The title is definitely fitting - I can't remember the last time I got to pee alone as a mother of 3 young boys.

There were a few stories that were obviously funnier than others, but they all were entertaining. Some of the stories I found myself saying "been there" or "done that!" I think my fave story out of them all - that has stuck in my head, was the story about the furry underwear. I don't have any daughters myself, but I think I might be glad I don't now after reading that story.

I like that this compilation of stories made me feel like I wasn't alone out there and that other mothers are going through the same things that I am. It's just nice to know that.

If you're a mom, becoming a mother, or not a mother yet, you can still enjoy these stories. You can snag your own e-copy of this book on Kobo here or on Amazon here. If you're not up to date with e-reading just yet, you can find a paperback copy on Amazon here.

That book looks really funny. Yup, I only pee alone when I'm at work.

My cat, Morgan, never lets me go the other bathroom alone ... sigh.

The title alone makes me crack up so I'm sure it's a fun read.
